The War Artist exhibition at the National Army Museum will feature more than 40 paintings that the celebrated equine artist Sir Alfred Munnings created whilst part of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in World War I.

This will be the first time that the paintings have been shown together in the UK since the end of the war, and will highlight the important role that horses played in military operations, while capturing the beauty of these animals in the war-torn landscapes of France.

The exhibition will also include some works on loan from the Canadian War Museum, revealing the work of the Canadian Cavalry Brigade and Forestry Corps.
